Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites

Let me take you back for a second- imagine it’s Halloween in the early 90s. I’m probably dressed as a black cat (it was my thing). I come home with a pillowcase full of candy and start my sorting ritual with my mom. I would hoard the peanut butter cups and Hershey bars, and I […]

Crispy Prosciutto Snacks (Paleo)

Did you ever make a great discovery in the kitchen, forget all about it, and then rediscover it later on? This happens to me sometimes, since I don’t repeat many recipes, but I still gravitate toward the same flavors and types of food (I’m looking at you, brunch.) That’s totally what happened to me here. […]

Chocolate Bacon Truffles (with a Dairy-Free option)

My darlings, I am so glad to bring this post to you.¬†All of that broken computer nonsense is over and done- how lucky and thankful I am to have a husband who can fix anything (thank you for all your help, too, YouTube- couldn’t have done it without you). And what better way to greet […]

Pumpkin and Gingersnap Yogurt Parfait (gluten-free)

It’s Thanksgiving week- I couldn’t leave you hanging without something yummy to look at! Forget pies and turkeys and sides and all of that nonsense- you probably already have your big day game plan in place. I wanted to give you something to eat in the days before (or after) Turkey Day. Chances are, you […]

Holiday Hosting for Every Appetite

Join me at MPMK today where I’m giving 5 tips to hosting guests with alternative diets, food allergies or other dietary restrictions. It doesn’t have to be a huge headache if you do a little planning. (Or it might still be a headache, but at least your guests will know you love them very much!)

Lamb Meatballs (gluten-free, grain-free, paleo) with Yogurt Dip and Spiced Vegetables

This new style of eating has been an adjustment. It’s hard to wrap my head around new rules for meal-planning and eating. So much of my day is spent thinking about food, and planning out when and what we’re going to eat and making grocery lists. I know it’s not permanent (I mean, I hope! […]

Sprouted Spelt and Pumpkin Spice Waffles

I know I just told you I’m supposed to be gluten-free and yes, spelt flour is not gluten-free. But fear not- I didn’t cheat! I was just the chef this time. That means that unfortunately, I didn’t get to taste these waffles. I can say with authority, though, that they look and smell delicious. I […]

Sesame Beef Stir Fry (gluten-free)

I have a lot of good cookbooks, and I really don’t pull them out enough. When I do, I usually just find some inspiration and end up making a new recipe instead of following the recipes provided. Typical food blogger, ahem. This recipe came about after a meal-planning session with a friend this week (and […]

Roasted and Spiced Autumn Vegetables

It’s a miracle that I have this recipe to share with you today. Not because I’m busy, but because my oven is on the fritz! The ol’ Oven Love oven is breaking down on me. Not the whole thing, oddly enough.. the stove top is still working. So weird! And so inconvenient since oven-using season […]

Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins [with no refined sugar]

I don’t eat much store-bought candy these days, but when Halloween rolls around, I find myself eyeballing those Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins. I know it’s basically the same as a peanut butter cup, but for some reason, the pumpkin always tasted better to me. Maybe a better peanut butter to chocolate ratio? Maybe the eye-catching […]
